A man was arrested and charged with child abuse related charges after beating a boy for refusing to eat squirrel soup full of vomit, according to a statement by a Florida police department.
The Florida man was arrested Saturday, according to a local television news station.
One morning, Marc Scott Smith, of Jupiter, made a breakfast of freshly hunted squirrel soup for the young child late last year, according to an affidavit obtained by the local television news station. The man’s relationship with the child, whose name has not been revealed, was not revealed in public court documents.
According to the affidavit, the child began to cough so hard that he vomited into the bowl of soup, but Smith, 50, forced the child to keep eating it.
When the child would not eat the mixture of vomit and squirrel, Smith allegedly hit him with a belt. The boy ran to the neighbors, who contacted police.
Members who spoke with the child shortly after the incident said that he had abrasions on his arm and wrist and a blow to the head.
Smith has been charged with child abuse and is being held on $3,000 bond, according to the Office of the Palm Beach County Sheriff.
